Networking at the ANZCHOG Annual Scientific Meeting

Louise Ludlow’s July visit to Sydney provided her with the opportunity to attend The Australian and New Zealand Children’s Haematology/Oncology Group (ANZCHOG) annual scientific meeting. ANZCHOG is a professional body for paediatric oncologists, health professionals and scientists who care for children with cancer.  Australia’s network of paediatric tumour tissue banks is overseen by ANZCHOG.

It was the first in-person conference since 2019. Many national and international experts across all disciplines of paediatric oncology and haematology came together to share their knowledge and experience. The ANZCHOG-Biobanking Network had a display to promote awareness of our biobanks and encourage sample utilisation. The networking opportunities and stimulating presentations made for an exciting conference.

Thank you Louise for providing us with this informatiom.
